New Morrissey video: Back on the Chain Gang

Video: Morrissey – “Back on the Chain Gang” Single out November 23. Also on upcoming double-vinyl reissue of Low in High School. I’m something of a Morrissey apologist but this is not a great cover. Moz’s clunky guitar player doesn’t nail the fluidity of the Pretenders’ original lead guitar line. That part was created by … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Back on the Chain Gang

New Morrissey video: Jacky’s Only Happy

Video: Morrissey – “Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up on the Stage” From Low In High School, out now on BMG. I always thought Morrissey could easily transition to being an English soap star should he ever decide to give up the music game. I mean, look at him: Can’t you just see him scheming … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Jacky’s Only Happy

New Morrissey video: Spent the Day in Bed

Video: Morrissey – “Spent the Day in Bed” From Low In High School, out November 17 on BMG. It’s super easy to hate Morrissey. I get it. He says and does a lot of stuff that’s impossible to defend. He applauds Brexit, he cancels tour after tour, he makes you sit through a half hour … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Spent the Day in Bed

The king of the punks at my school was a senior named Alex who came to class one … Continue reading Riot Fest 2016: I Remember Halloween

Video: Morrissey – Kiss Me a Lot

Morrissey – Kiss Me A Lot. (Official Video)

Good old Moz. He scheduled a new tour and has released a new video for a song from his latest album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, which he pulled from iTunes and other digital services back in August of 2014. The “Kiss Me a Lot” single, however, is now available on iTunes.

The video looks kinda crappy with bad lighting and egregious shots of half-naked women. But you know: gotta get those eyeballs, right?

Morrissey - Kiss Me Women

Right. Cross your fingers for the old grouch to stay healthy and make all of his upcoming shows.

Introducing Your Judges

Look at this picture and just imagine the comments. Imagine being a poor soul with ugly shoes who happens to pass by. The insults would be earth shattering. Mozzer, Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher all passing judgment on you in a public space? It’s just too much. But now imagine that rhetorical arsenal put to … Continue reading Introducing Your Judges

Morrissey Gets No Royalties

According to a post on fan site True To You, Morrissey would like it to be known that he “has not received a royalty from EMI since 1992” and “last received a royalty payment from Warners ten years ago.” This comes in response to his former labels releasing some new vinyl box sets. The 7″ … Continue reading Morrissey Gets No Royalties
